    What is Fire Partitioning?

    Fire Partitioning - Fire Walls

    Fire partitioning is the process when constructing a building to ensure fire safety by preventing fire spread. They are internal walls, and ceilings which ensure that a fire, for a limited time, will only be contained in that room or area of the building. This ensures that people within the building have enough time to find escape routes, as well as potentially causing minimal damage to the establishment as only a certain area is affected.

     

    Any and every fire starts small and grows. If combustible materials and oxygen are available with no physical barriers, it will attack the structure of the initial room it was caused in and spread. A fire-rated partition prevents this by creating a containment which ensures the fire cannot spread for a certain period of time. Partition times can range from 30 to 240+ minutes, ensuring the safety of the people in the building.

     

    A fire-rated partition has been regulated and checked by the appropriate European standards. Here at Ark Fire Protection we are highly skilled and experienced in installing fire partitions within buildings.

    Vertical & Horizontal

    Types of Fire Partitions

    There are two main types of fire partitions available: vertical and horizontal. Ark highly recommend considering both options, as they serve the same purpose but in different facets of the building.

     

    Vertical partitions are placed vertically within the walls of the building. These act as a fire resistance which prevents fires from spreading in between rooms through burning through combustable materials such as plasterboard. These partitions create significant fire resistance containing the fire within the original room.

     

    The vast majority of partition walls contain interruptions, usually for things like pipes and electricity sockets. These interruptions are classed as “weak-spots” when it comes to fire resistance. It is recommended to install penetration seals to strengthen these weaker places in the partition.

     

    Here at Ark we’re very experienced in installing vertical partitions, however please be aware that in some buildings the existing walls may need upgrading in order to meet the standards of government regulations.

    Fire Wall Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a fire wall?

    Fire partitioning / walls ensure fire safety by preventing fire spread. They are internal walls and ceilings which ensure that a fire, for a specific time, will only be contained to that room or area.

     

    How do fire walls work?

    Fire walls create completely independent structures within a building. With fire walls in place, if one section of a building becomes structurally unstable during a fire, that section can break away from the other sections, protecting their occupants from the collapse.
